My home in April

I should be cleaning my home.
Instead I am taking photo's of it.

To give myself credit, I have a yucky headache and have had a rough week so I kinda deserve to do something self-indulgent like blogging.

So lately I've been feeling blah about my lounge room. Even though I tend to change things around a lot in my home, the lounge room has with the exception of the occasional cushion shuffle, been pretty much the same for 2 years. I have particularly been feeling overwhelmed by all the colour it has. I suppose that's the result of buying second hand and decorating on a budget. You don't always end up with exactly what you want and tend to make do. So I needed an insurgence of white! Op-shopping budget for said insurgence: $0.
Hmmmm. So I rummaged through the rest of the house for as many white or whitish items as I could find.

We bought this cute chair from a garage sale (or "Veranda Sale" according to the sign. Quaint.) on our anniversary day in the Barossa Valley. The Little old lady at the sale was happy to haggle for it as she could see I was going to love it and bring it to life again :-)

It's chrysanthemum season!!! Yay yay yay!!!
Thank you Old Italian Lady at Newton, your flowers are so beautiful and cheap and make me very happy!

They last for about 3-4 weeks. What joy!

I wish there were such thing as scratch and sniff computers so you could smell these strawberries I bought today! Delectable.

I really love this lamp Zennan made. His name is Stanley and I always think he's gonna come alive, swivel his head and flash me. Zen will be making some more like it to sell soon.

Have I mentioned how much I love Autumn?!
Pumpkin salad for dinner tomorrow and roasted chestnuts to have with coffee (aptly named "Autumn blend").

I hope you find a sunny spot somewhere this weekend ~Love E xo
